Share The Love Subaru & Baltimore Humane Society Donation Drive and Adoptathon
DONATE NOW AND JOIN US ON DECEMBER 14TH AND MEET ADOPTABLE PETS
BaltimoreHumane Society and Subaru of Hunt Valley are counting on the community to “Share the Love” and open its hearts at an Adoptathon and Donation Drive at Subaru of Hunt Valley on Saturday, December 14th to help the homeless pets being cared for at our no-kill shelter in Reisterstown. Our goal is to fill up a Subaru Forester. Your in-kind or monetary donations are critical for the survival of the area’s no-kill shelter, and so of course, is the adoption of these dogs and cats to loving, forever homes. Baltimore Humane Society receives no operational funding from local or federal governments, or any national animal welfare organizations.
Bring your collection to Subaru of Hunt Valley and then meet some of our adoptable dogs and cats from 11am to 3pm on December 14th! Need a pet tag? We’ll be making them for you on the spot.
Here are the major items on our Wish List. If you’d like to make a monetary donation you go online to our website at http://www.bmorehumane.org/donate/contribute
